Back from my trip to El Paso. Had 1 practice session prior to heading to Nationals at the ITRC in Arlington so had some sense of what the pattern was going to do.

Arrived Tuesday evening, went to check out the venue. Was laid out rather nice.

Shot Bowler's Journal on Wednesday afternoon, only shot 544. Got too fast a few times. Shot 40 frame game that evening, always have fun at that event.

Thursday was Team Event.
Shot 235-234-191 = 662 Extremely happy with that.

Friday evening was Double/singles:
Doubles 189-196-186 = 571

Singles 179-213-191 = 583

All events - 662-571-583 = 1816

My highest score to date of my 3 trips to Nationals. Needless to say, I am very happy with that. Should cash in all but Team as most had a very tough time with the pattern.

Really have to control speed and make sure you don't get out side of 8-9 board too soon. I played rather straight piping up 10-12 at arrows with very slight swing. If I had caught transition early enough at end of Doubles/beginning of singles I could have put up more.

Spare shooting was definitely at a premium. Missed 2 single pins, a 2 and a 10. But multi pin spares were tough. Missed a few 3-6-10's, picking out 2 of the pins each time. Took out the 8 of a 2-8 once.

All in all a good trip. El Paso was great, nice town with nice people. We shot next to some locals in each event and got the low down on some places to eat at.

On Doubles and singles, the pair next to us was Earon Vollmar, he shot the last 900 series back in January. He struggled a bit on the patterns. Think I saw his All Events score was in the 1700's. He throws a nice ball, but is very animated when things don't go his way. Arms were thrown up many times.
